In 90 duotone images, Greenfield's dancers defy gravity and push the limits of the possible. A preface takes us behind the scenes in her studio, and the photographer's own captions illuminate the challenges of making pictures that recreate the seeming effortlessness of dance. As inspiring as it is technically remarkable, this collection of incomparable images is sure to captivate dance lovers, photographers, and all who admire the beauty and strength of the human body.

Airborne: Lois Greenfield’s photographic tribute to the art of dance

Lois Greenfield is an amazing photographer, to put it mildly. Since the 1980s, her photos have made their indelible imprint on the world of dance, and her claim to fame is her amazing ability to capture the human form in motion. Some have compared her work with Eadweard Muybridge for his exploration of human locomotion, and with Henri Cartier-Bresson for capturing the elusive moment and doing it artfully.

Wonderful no-trick photos that seem to defy gravity

Wonderful book. None of the photographs are tricked — that is, all are usual perspectives, normal orientation (what looks like the floor at first glance really is), no strings, no unseen bars or plates, no studio retouching of former. (See LG’s preface.) Truly amazing work.

A unique perspective of dance photography.

This book is a sequel to the book BREAKING BOUNDS.The trick photography is incredible! Some of the photos are tasteful nudes that captivate you with their artistry. If a picture is worth a thousand words… this book is worth a couple million!
